Wunderbar is a delicious insight into the surreal and fantastical world of Eddie Izzard touching on life, love, history and even her theory of the universe. Wunderbar began life at La Nouvelle Seine, a floating theatre in Paris on the Seine where Izzard began to improvise her new show in French. She then flipped countries and continued developing the show improvising in Berlin in German. After more development in English, Izzard shared Wunderbar with the world, touring in 45 countries and performing the show in four languages… But made sure the language fit the country!
A live performance of Eddie Izzard’s 2003 world tour, performed in front of an Eastbourne audience.
Eddie Izzard is one of only four comedians to ever play Madison Square Garden and she is the only one from England. This live sold out show was the final stop on her “Stripped” tour of 2010. In Eddie’s own words, the show is “about everything that has ever happened… with a few gaps” as she runs through social commentary, witty observations and quite a few “off the subject” tangents. From God & politics to history and even ancient Latin, Eddie s genius shines in this tour de force.
Eddie Izzard, the transvestite king of comedy, comes roaring back with all of her wry wit and absurd observations in one of her biggest shows ever. Performed in front of a sell-out crowd of over 44,000 over 4 nights at Wembley Stadium in London, Eddie never lets up the funny as she deals with the important issues ranging from Medusa’s hair care, fighting sharks, dentistry, and the universal hatred of houseflies. Eddie’s unique delivery keeps the audience in stitches even during her pauses, demonstrating again why she is one of the top comedians in the world. Sexie Tour Wembley features the master of comedy at the top of her game.

Eddie Izzard spins free-flowing jokes about San Francisco, transvestitism, squirrels, American optimism, Hitler, the British royal family, mass murder, and Stonehenge–and that’s only the first 30 minutes. Izzard romps through human history and transforms surprisingly complex ideas into biting satire–as well as knockout bits of sublime frivolity, like describing the movie Speed entirely in French. Her mercurial patter is sprinkled with four-letter words, but her twinkling glances make this more mischievous than crude.
This superb DVD was recorded at the Shaftesbury Theatre, London, when Eddie was in the middle of her sell-out 12 week run.
